You love her as Rocky on Shake It Up, but Zendaya is taking on a new role -- as a prankster! Zendaya puts on her pirate gear and tricks her fan Jordan in the new episode of PrankStars tonight at 8 p.m. on Disney Channel. J-14 chatted with Zendaya about the show, who's the biggest prankster on the Shake It Up set, and which celebrity she'd like to prank!
J-14 What is the most epic prank you have ever pulled?
Zendaya: This one is by far was the biggest one I've ever done. It was so high-scale and there was high-tech equipment we were using. Mitchel was talking in our ear telling us what to do and there was a command center and everything so definitely the most top-notch thing I've done.
J-14: What is the best prank that has ever been pulled on you?
Zendaya: One time my dad and I were on our way home from school and my mom called us cause she was already at home and was like, "Ah, I chopped off my finger!" And we were like, "What?!" We rushed home and when we got there she was like, "Haha got you suckers!" I was freaked out and I was like, "Oh no my mom chopped off her finger!" But it turns out that was not true!
J-14: Who is the biggest prankster on the Shake It Up set?
Zendaya: I would say Bella. Bella is definitely a big prankster. Bella and I went around the set and took a spray bottle that you would put like household cleaning stuff in and we put blue Gatorade it it and she went around spraying it in her mouth and pretending like it was Windex and scaring everybody and telling them that is was good for her voice. I told her how to do it because I didn't want to do it, so I just told her what to do and she went out there and did it. It was super funny because everyone for a second was like, "Oh my gosh Bella, you're crazy!"
J-14 Was there any point during your prank on PrankStars that you felt bad for Jordan? It must have been so hard to keep a straight face!
Zendaya: Well I never really felt bad because I knew she was having fun even though she was kind of weirded out. She's a really big character, so I think she was having fun. But there were also points when it was extremely hard not to laugh. She had to do this crazy dance and sing and jump all over the place acting like a pirate, and of course, I wanted to laugh. It's natural to want to laugh, but I just had to keep it in and I had to center myself.
J-14: Who is your dream celebrity to pull a prank on?
Zendaya: That is a tough one. There's so many out there. I would say Beyonce. She's definitely one of my role models, so I would be able to meet her. Plus, I'd be able to pull a prank on her. I don't know how she would react to a prank. She's pretty cool -- I think she would be super chill.
